By 2014 Dr. Mark McKenna had established himself as both a medical doctor and an entrepreneur, but after selling ShapeMed he decided it was in his best interest to go back to school where he earned his executive MBA. Realizing it was never too late to learn, Dr. McKenna found his MBA coursework better prepared him to launch his latest business OVME. Dr. McKenna credits his parents with being great role models that helped him realize his ability to become a successful entrepreneur. In the new year Dr. McKenna is looking forward to his new venture and is excited to embark on a five-year growth plan that includes launching OVME in Atlanta GA, and Las Vegas NV. While Dr. Mark McKenna is excited with his current project, he is always full of ideas and looking to expand his business.
